Preparation for Adults through Training and Higher Education (CUNY Career PATH) received a $19,860,087 Round One TAACCCT award to serve unemployed and underemployed New Yorkers and build capacity to better prepare adults for high-growth jobs. The program trained adult students in 15 occupational trainings in five major industries – health, business, education, hospitality, and manufacturing.
Defining Features of Project:
- The CareerPATH program model was designed with two overarching goals:
- To provide opportunities for unemployed and underemployed adults to train for employment in five major industries in New York City.
- To build the University’s long-term capacity to serve adult students through high quality workforce development initiatives.
- To support student success, a pre-program seminar was developed to initiate students into the training program, to communicate performance expectations, and to help students to understand their potential post-program career and educational pathways.
- While enrolled, students received career and academic advisement, case management, and job placement assistance. Additionally, CareerPATH integrated academic skills instruction within occupational training courses to help students build reading, writing and math competencies in addition to occupation-specific skills.
